is i have for us in washington. catherine, what is the reaction from the nsa? >> reporter: heather, the nsa is pushing back against "the wall street journal" story this morning though officials do not point to a specific claim other than saying the figure of 75% is overly broad. in a statement to fox news a nsa spokesperson says quote, nsa signals intelligence mission is centered on defeating foreign adversaries who are aiming to harm the country. we defend against threats and working to protect privacy rights of u.s. persons. it is not either/or. it is both. the use of the devices that allow the agency to pull data in real time as it passes through web networks. the in. sa's definition of collection relies on an intelligence directive which defines collection as analyzing retrieving information, not actually storing it, heather. heather: catherine, where does it leave the administration? >> reporter: in his most recent comments on the ns aft controversy president obama said more americans learn about the nsa programs and safeguards built into the programs he believes the more comf

. >> critics are refuting many claims the obama administration made by the nsa data collection program. that is leaving many worried about the security of their personal information and wondering whether or not the agency is playing by the rules. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge has more now from washington. hi, catherine. have we reach ad tipping. >> reporter: patti ann, according to aclu at least 20 pieces of legislation are being considered to modify the nsa program adding the white house continues to disappoint its base on the issue. >> i think the white house has lost credibility and i think the government generally has been operating with a deficit of trust in the area of surveillance for the past few years. they have been saying one thing publicly to congress and to the courts and turns out that quite another thing has been taking place behind closed doors. >> reporter: in the end the aclu alleges that the nsa plays word games under the set of rules known as the united states intelligence directive 18, collecting data only applies when the data is analyzed and
begins a week-long family vacation. among the likely topics today, obamacare, the nsa, the terror threat overseas and our bumpy relationship with russia. joining me now for her take on what to expect today is monica crowley, fox news contributor. monica, always good to have you with us here on "happening now." the president, he is facing some questions today from the quote, unquote, news media as opposed to what he did the other night on tuesday with jay leno which is a softer approach. what do you think he is going to face today? >> actually jay leno asked him tougher questions. kelly: good for jay leno. >> sometimes than we see from the white house press corps, right? the president does in press conferences. he runs out the clock and take a question and tends to filibuster. i have a feeling this press conference lasts about an hour which is usually the time frame, he will run out the clock and run out the door to his vacation. i expect he will get a couple questions on nsa. for example he told jay leno earlier this week that the u.s. does not have a domestic spying program yet "the new
that n.s.a. snooping was more extensive than we thought as more leaked documents show thousands of privacy violations every year. katherine is live in d.c. taking a look at this. i guess there are people on both sides of the aisle in opposition to the programs, right? >> well, there are. what is striking about the latest revelations is that democrats and republicans believe the n.s.a. has not followed the rules laid down by congress. as for the president who returned last night from vacation, on the sunday talk shows a long time republican critic of government surveillance programs said mr. obama bears some of the blame. >> he thinks that if he gets some lawyers together from the n.s.a. and they do a power point presentation and tell him everything is okay, that the n.s.a. can police themselves. >> the n.s.a. says that thousands of violations were unintentional and steps were taken to limit or mitigation the american civil liberties. republicans and democrats are not satisfied. the broib is justified. >> getting all of the phone calls from all americans in the united states unde
, that is most unusual. is there any feeling this is the government issuing a warning at a time when the nsa is under scrutiny for its broad-reaching surveillance programs? >> reporter: well, clearly the information came as a result of those nsa surveillance programs. the doubters may think so but even congressman pete king, republican from new york, former head of homeland security and the administration's most vocal critic says no. >> we can't criticize them for doing too little with benghazi and not criticize them for doing too much. i give them credit for learning from benghazi and that's why they're firming up the embassies. as far as the worldwide alert i think it is absolutely warranted in this situation. >> reporter: the al qaeda leader, al-zawahiri who took over for bin laden after he was culled issued calls from separate audiotapes from wherever he is hiding in pakistan. the second 14-minute tape was posted on internet on friday. germany, france, england have intercepted similar intelligence and issued similar precautions closing their embassies in yemen this beak. kelly. >> better
surveillance methods by the nsa. and now the means by which the evidence is originally collected the lawful. after authorities make a risk, the person on trial may not know about the original tip that led law enforcement to them. so they may not know it goes all the way back to the nsa and their surveillance programs. critics suggest hiding the origin may violate our right to a fair trial. so it's a big story. reuters broke it, and john shipman is one of the journalists behind this scoop. john, nice to have you on with us. >> thanks for having me. jenna: so our point of reference has been edward snowden and a lot of policy arguments, legal arguments about what the nsa is doing. what this group inside the dea is specific to the dea, what they're doing is something a little bit different. what do you think every american needs to know about this program? >> well, it makes this program different that this goes to nonterrorrist cases. the it's used in what they call ordinary crime cases; drug cases, organized crime, gang cases. and what happens here is that the dea's special operations division
in the country today. i look at a lot of these scandals, whether it's the i.r.s. or the n.s.a. or the department of justice or benghazi, and i'm frustrated a lot of people in south and i think, you know, washington is out of touch. they think they know better than we do. and i haven't lost hope and i don't think south carolina has, either. we have a rich history of sending conservative leaders like senator de mint to washington and i want to restore that tradition. jenna: lindsey graham has been the senator in your state since 2002. he served in the military as well as your family has and he's been in front of a lot of issues, including benghazi. what don't you like about him? >> i look at this being sort of a big picture. it's not necessarily one man or one senator but i look at these issues and i say to myself, can we trust this government? whether it's with our health care or our taxes or our personal phone and email records. and he's on the other side of that argument. i look at most recently obamacare, for instance. that's just one of many issues. and there's an effort in d.c. today to
. so the information begins in some cases with foreign intelligence, it goes from the nsa to the dea which sends it to the irs which uses it in the field. the people who are arrested and charged are never told where this information originally came from. jenna: so we reached out to the dea as we mentioned on monday, we have some great reporters and producers that work with the justice department, and an unnamed dea official says this essentially, that the whole way that this is supposed to work, if you will, is to protect law enforcement informants so that they don't have any danger of being revealed. it's like an anonymous source, anonymous tip, that's the reason why we would not know the chain going all the way back to the federal government. what do folks tell you in your reporting as to whether or not that's a legitimate explanation for the way that this information is used? >> well, it's absolutely legitimate to protect sources and methods, and the -- but there's process for that in the courts already for both classified information and for informant information. virtually every
? >> well, i think this is very significant given the controversy over the nsa's programs and foreign intelligence gathering. this is actually what nsa does. we don't know specifically, obviously, where the intelligence came from, but all that monitoring of e-mails and internet web sites and phone calls, this is, this is what american intelligence is supposed to do. we spy on foreigners. and i think the greatest criticism one can make of our foreign intelligence gathering is that there's not enough of it. alisyn: let's turn our attention to iran. the president-elect of iran had some choice words for israel, and if we were hoping for some toned-down rhetoric, it looks like we'll be disappointed, because he's just said that israel is an old wound on the body of the islamic world that should be removed. that was his quote. what are we to make of his statements? >> yeah. well, that's, that is the new moderate who's about to be sworn in as president of iran on sunday. now, the iranian news agency has tried to say thins that quote -- since that quote went out from the iranian news agency th
documents to wikileaks. his military trial coupled with edward snowden's revelations over top secret nsa surveillance programs raising questions about motives of different so-called hackers. in the world of cybersecurity, there are two types of hackers. on one hand you have the so-called good guys. known as the white hats, who have the goal to find holes in the system so they can be fixed and not exploited. on the other hand there are the black hats, the hackers who take advantage of those weaknesses and those quite frankly are the bad guys. we have a columnist and former publisher of "the wall street journal.". gordon, one of the things that came up in the conversations about these stories is whether or not the government wears the black hats or the white hats. how would you answer that question. >> let's start at the beginning which is why we're having debate about government surveilance. at end of the day the reason is, our 9/11 happened. in the 1990s, there were at the request of privacy advocates new rules put in place. made it very hard for intelligence agencies to gather the dots
